gas prices recovered under bush as opposed to obama. there are so many examples. don't forget the fact over a four-year period, president obama's job creation total when you takes on the job lost and gained was a anytime of 2 -- net of 25,000. every five days, roughly that many people come into the workforce. in four years he created enough jobs to fill a week's worth of new job applicants in the united states. president bush had better job numbers. not great but were better job numbers and we remember in 2003 and 2004 we heard talk about the jobless bush recovery. the media of course will give obama a free pass on the economy but they didn't cover the obama economy with near the kind of voracity. >> when it comes to this stuff, if you're going to be aggressive on one, be aggressive on all. like we raised from the coverage of jesse jackson junior. if you go after republicans for inproprieties go with equal zeal covering democrats in theirs. on the economy stuff, we are led to believe that we are in the middle of a gang busters's recovery when even to date we're net jobs down in this ad
out of washington, dc, and especially from president obama, is a very schizophrenic political game. if you understand the whole idea about sequester came from the white house, and we know that for a fact because according to the press secretary, according to senator bachus and bob worldy, and then in 2011 said he would veto any plan to avoid the sequester. and then in 2012 he said the sequester could not happen. now he comes back from playing golf with tiger woods, he has his conference and starts with the fear mongering and the threats. it's very simple, neil. there are two pieces of legislation that will replace the sequester with very real spending cuts that we passed last year in the house of representatives, hr5652 and hr6684. but you also talk about something that we all must realize. until we move away from the baseline budget system where we have an increase and basically talking about cutting the increase, we'll never get to the real problem in wbc. >> when i looked at what the republican strategy was on this, sit this out, wait the president out, continue with their vacat
and they said there's a very unique equation here. sequester equals bad. obama coined the sequester. that's what they say. i talked to democrats and they say we need four more days to shut off the sequester. the interesting thing is that everybody is locked in. there is no bill that's moving in the house of representatives. republicans say we passed two bills last year. there are a couple of bills in the senate moving later this week. republican plan, democratic plan, which would curb the sequester and give agencies the agility to time the cuts out so they don't hit at once and give them discretion in the way they make cuts. but the bottom line is this is not a hair on fire moment on capitol hill. we have been through these drills meantimes on government shutdowns and the debt ceiling and fiscal cliff. it's not a running down the hallway, blackberries exploding. it's an interesting dynamic. >> now the republican leaders who are going to respond to the pr pressure against them over the last week by the president. >> good afternoon, everyone. four days, we have four days until the president's sequ
a continuation of the obama campaign and it's time to wake up to the reality that government has expanded exponentially and it's time to look at rome restraint. >> neil: you're rate, kate, very much. i want to bring you up to date with the math. this is not red or blue, it's green, just money. if you add up all the fear mongering and the things we're supposedly lose, the guards at the airport, the tsa officials, the beef inspectors, you would be talking about -- including those to defense, which would dwarf the 85 billion, along the magnitude of the fear mongering, it would be the n the vicinity of $850 billion. ten times what we're talking about. i only raise that because no one else is and that's going on. i'm the nerd. i just follow the numbers and this doesn't add up. meanwhile, with the cuts brewing, the speaker is suing. >> we should not have to move a third bill before the senate get offs their ass and begins to do something. >> one senator is trying to do that. republican tomko burn is outlining 1.4 billion bucks in savings. it's a start. like the $179,000 position for the agricul
of things being blown up. eek core terrorism. >> i'm saying by any means, by barack obama stopping it, spectacular. >> you're tot talking about dismantling physically or ecoterrorism. >> depends on the circumstances. >> a possibility? >> means by any means necessary. >> neil: mark is with us now. mark, wow, just wow. reporter: this was a very typical sentiment at this rally. there's anger, and it's not just -- these are not just a few disgruntled protesters. the lead nasa global warming scientist has announced it's game over for the climate if we approve the keystone pipe will be. gabe was arrested protesting the pipeline. he is nasa's lead scientist endorsed a book calling the world for ridding itself of industrialization by turning off the greenhouse gas machine. this man i interviewed about ecoterror and the pipeline, his inspiration to stop the pipeline. so, the leaders at nasa -- i call them nasa's resident ex-con -- is inspiring these people to point acts of ecoer toism, and they're against all forms of energy, which doesn't make send. if we're getting oil from democracy in cana
you. tonight barack obama has choice, maggie or nicky or keep playing the same games on spending that have the capital more looking like walt disney. >> all it took a report out out of treasury of a surprising surplus to take the pressure off this president to cut spending this cold night in february. democrats quickly seizing on the data proof the deficits are getting better thanks to higher taxes. the president apparently says that his debt slashing is all but done, he has come up with $4 trillion budget cuts and mission accomplished. it's over ten years and still leave us $35 trillion more bucks in debt over the same ten years. are we really saying it could have been worse? it could have been $9 trillion more, more or less. don't expect much cutting. because now is not the time to cut. you got to ask yourself, when is the time to cut? if the economy is too fragile to cut spending why is it perfectly fine to raise taxes? so revenue is good and less government bad? it's time to seized moment of spending right now but something tells me not this president and not now because it's
pelosi, barack obama, i'm seriously gingrich to think they are crazy. they're all card carrying members of the you the new spending planet earth society. no problems, no worries. good god. to former ohio democratic congressman dennis kucinich. congressman, a trillion dollar more going out than coming in. this would be a spending problem, would it not? >> government's wasting money. it should spend less on war and give less to the pharmaceuticals. i understand what senator harken's saying. >> i don't understand it at all. when you say we don't have a spending problem, you are saying that a trillion more going out than coming in -- >> i didn't say that. >> you know what i mean. the 60 trillion-dollar in debt. we've known each other many years. in your worst days, and there haven't been many worst days, you never said that. that's crazy talk. yet i her more and more of it. >> i read what senator harken said and what he was saying is we have so much money in the country, how can you say we're broke? he's right about misallocation but it would have been better to elaborate and this is his po
's no question. look how the -- let's step back a second and put this in some cop text. when obama ran for the senate, he was smiling, waving his hands. what was he behind the escapes? everything they could to get ahold of his opponents divorce records which were under sale in california. they came out. they imbear wassed the family. and obama said he didn't know anything about it. this last campaign against romney. romney who was an inept candidate but that aside, look at the brutality of these ads of him wanting somebody's wife to pass away because of his own policies and on and on. permanent vicious attacks. obama always pretend he was above it, smiling, waving his hands. they -- >> shepard: mark what do you make of the notion, well, the president doesn't know anything about it. each administration has it hit men. richard nixon had ehrlichman and alderman, and bush administration had dick cheney, and people say this president is above that sort of thing. i say, whatever you argue, nice guy, and aprilable, wonderful family, but the fact of the matter is, and i've seen this since the
. that statement from president obama is ridiculous. if you look at u.s. oil consumption, it's been declining for a long time now. last year we consumed 18.6 million barrels of oil a day, which i the same amount we consumed in 1996. so u.s. oil consumption is going down. not about the u.s. consuming more oil. western european oil consumption is going down. i you want to know where the growth is coming. , it's emerging marks like champion and india. china consumes two barrels of oil per person per year compared to the u.s. at 22 and at it just going to keep going -- >> it's not how much we're using but access to how much we're getting? the president says he has been more open to opening up land than anyone prior. you say what? >> well, i don't think so. obviously the u.s. energy companies are having some success. u.s. oil production has been rising for three years. u.s. and canada are the only two countries outside opec, showing any growth at all. but there's a lot more we can do. another big problem is the enable to build new pipelines to actually move oil from all these new fields in north d
dismisses that, and president obama says as much, and tomorrow he is expected to say much more. and proving the government and at the rate it is going, it is going to break all of that. but not if this superhero has anything to say about it. >> anyway, the colorado state treasurer who believes very much in the superhero but is very concerned about the not so superheroics going on in washington. always good to have you. what do you make of this? >> well, neil, welcome back. can give you 15-1/2 trillion reasons why we do have a spending problem. but beyond a spending problem we have a pelosi problem. what i mean by that is we have a collective ignorance on the part of legislative leaders and the presidents a economic advisedders who do not have any kind of business experience, even recognize this is a threat, huge threat, and if you look -- what do people do when they're confronted with the threat? in the private sector, they diagnosis the problem, map it out, and then work to fix the problem -- >> not if they don't see it as a problem. they -- itch the issue is, we see the debt and the defic
republicans have the fort attitude to let it take place. it was president obama's bright idea in 2011 when he failed to get any negotiation with republicans over the debt ceiling. he said guys, i have an idea, it's called sequester. $1.2 trillion over 10 years. you know what republicans said in we don't like that you want half the cuts to come from defense. no, we're going to do it. now the president doesn't want it because he's not interested in cutting. >> they both signed on to the agreement. i called it a backup backbone. but i agree with you on this, the cuts are not cuts, they're shaving off the growth of varies programs in the future so nothing is outright cut. in a $3.5 trillion budget, $82 billion is a joke. having said that, it's better than nothing. it's better than just letting this pass by. >> right. you know why it's better? the american people have said that the debt in our debt deficit is their biggest worry. pew research did a study and guess where the deficit and debt was with american people. number one. american people know what's good for the country but the president doe
